“Indeed, I have parted ways from BuzzFeed,” Rushfield told FishbowlLA via email Saturday night after a long day at Anaheim’s WonderCon. “Wasn’t the right fit in the end, but I wish them all the best.”
The exit comes exactly five months after Rushfield joined BuzzFeed last fall to launch a west coast bureau. He leaves behind chief correspondent Kate Aurthur, senior film reporter Adam B. Vary, reporter Tessa Stuart, correspondent-at-large Michael Hastings and associate editors Louis Peitzman and Erin La Rosa.
